|On May 26, 2020, shortly after 9:00 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers and Detectives were dispatched to the 1600 block of G Street in Kingsport in reference to a shooting incident. Responding Officers located Jeremy L. Smallwood lying in the roadway with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds. Sullivan County E.M.S. transported Mr. Smallwood to an area hospital for emergency medical treatment.
Tyjuan M. Marsh was detained at the scene and identified as the individual who shot Mr. Smallwood. Based upon the investigation thus far, it is believed that Mr. Smallwood was engaged in an argument with another individual (not named in this release) when Mr. Marsh produced a firearm and shot Mr. Smallwood.
Mr. Marsh was charged with Aggravated Assault and booked into the Kingsport City Jail. He has since been released after posting a $10,000 bond. As of the time of issuance of this release, Mr. Smallwood remains hospitalized in critical condition.
This remains an open and active investigation by the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division. As such, absolutely no further information will be released at this time.
